Synopsis

In most ordinary high schools, many stories and rumors float around—some scandalous, some happy and some...more macabre. One such example is of monsters lurking in an abandoned mansion outside of town. Such tales, however, prove too tempting to resist for Hiroshi and his friends Mika, Takeshi, and Takurou. They decide to brave the rumored dangers in order to investigate the manor and complete a test of courage. Each of them approaches the mansion with an overwhelming sense of dread. And when they enter, they come upon a blue monster named Ao Oni who attacks them.

As Hiroshi and his friends try to solve the various puzzles in the mansion and escape their new blue nemesis, they find themselves meeting several horrible endings as they fail miserably.

This opera is really underrated because of itscomplex structure. It looks like a dumb chibi funny anime, with no interest in developing the characters or making them progress like happened with the game. So you are probably wondering why I gave it a 10.
That's pretty simple, this opera contains one other anime, really deep and conscious. You have to analyze what happens and you will understand what I say. For eaxmple in every episode they die, but in the next episode there is no sign of change in their acting, but if you know stoics's philosophy it will gain one other layer. It represents read more

Episodes 4, 12, and 13 are the only ones worth watching. At my least critical, I might include episodes 5 and 11 with those on the account that they mildly amused me, though I will still likely forget them a week after I've written this review. If you've stumbled upon this series of comedy shorts because of the following the original freeware Ao Oni game has gained, that's really all you need to know. Those are the only episodes of this show that I might consider clever, and even then, not by much. Most of the humor in these shorts is very stale and predictable, read more

I was pleasently surprised and disappointed by this series. It's kind of like a "Pop Team Epic" for horror. The characters seem to look and act like how they do in the game (even though Takuro is protrayed nicer than in the game) and are pretty spot on. Story-wise the shorts aren't always the best in quality. While some are genuinely funny, some are really bland and unfunny. The ending was surprisingly scary, and really came out of left field. It was a welcome surprise. The animation was well-done and super cute. It's not the best short "comedy" one-shot series out there, and I read more

Ao Oni...

few shows manage to impact my life in a meaningful way, and yet this masterpiece not only did that but it managed to change my life completely.

It's truly an emotional rollercoaster of ups and downs, filled to the brim with comedy, tension, drama, horror, romance, and characters who evolve and adapt throughout the narrative. By the end of the series you've seen every character grow, to a point where looking back to the start they're almost unrecognisable. I would best describe them each, as a block of marble who are masterfully sculpted into perfect pieces of art.

My personal favourite episodes are the 4th and read more
